Law Reports of Trials of War Criminals
Selected and prepared by the
United Nations War Crimes Commission
This 15-volume series summarizes the course of the more important proceedings taken against individuals accused of war crimes during World War II, excluding the major war criminals tried by the Nuremberg and Tokyo International Military Tribunals. These representative trials of war criminals were selected for this series based on the major points of municipal and international law that were raised and settled during the trials as well as the potential for the greatest legal interest. For example, Volume 4 includes the trial of General Tomoyuki Yamashita (PDF). Each volume begins with a unique introduction by the Right Honorable Lord Wright of Durley, Chairman of the United Nations War Crimes Commission. Original volumes of this series may be found in the collections of The Judge Advocate General's Legal Center & School Library, U.S. Army, Charlottesville, Virginia and the Library of Congress (Library of Congress Call Number JX6731.W3 U6; OCLC Number 122275472). For related materials also available on this Web site, see the “Blue,” “Red,” and “Green” series and associated reports from the Nuremberg Trials and The Case of General Yamashita: A Memorandum (PDF).
